SPOKANE, Wash. - Jan. 31, 2019 - PRLog -- KSPS Public Television announced today it will host a free public screening of its new hourlong documentary, "Injustice at Home: Looking Like the Enemy," on February 12th at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture.

During WWII, almost the entire population of Japanese Americans on the West Coast were forcibly removed from their homes by the US government and incarcerated. Their only crime was looking like the enemy. Of the 120,000 imprisoned, two-thirds were American citizens; most were women and children. It has been called "our worst wartime mistake."

Featuring the inspiring stories of people in our community, the hour-long documentary focuses on Japanese Americans during WWII, both inside and outside the evacuation zone; chronicling their struggles, experiences, and perseverance through discrimination, racism and injustice.

The public is invited to the screening Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at the Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) at 2316 W 1st Avenue in Spokane.
